How old is Gabriel? There's quite a few playgroups around, the Grapevine mag is available from the library or Sutton Children's Info Centre. Welcome to Sutton, it can be hard getting to know people especially with a young child...

Hello! My mil lives just round the corner from the station there! My dd3 has special needs so we don't tend to do the rounds of the nt groups. I do know though that the childrens centres run activities for the under 5's. There is one next to Tweedale school, they do music sessions on a Tuesday morning and they also do messy play at sometime during the week. Spencer nursery also do the same thing, they are on Spencer Road 02086484126. Messy play is on a Wednesday morning, music is on a Monday morning and stay and play is on a Friday morning. I think all the sessions are free but I'm not entirely sure.

Almost forgot! There are soft play sessions run at Sutton Arena, opposite St Helier hospital and at Westcroft, off Carshalton High Street. I think they cost about £4 per session.

Hello Gabriel's Mum, I'm sure I met you the other day in the playground - I was there with my son and daughter. I'm also up for a coffee before 12 noon on a weekday. After that I have to drive my daughter to school in West Wimbledon.

Thomas Wall and Manor Park are good childrens centres, with excellent staff and facilities.

Sutton Family Information Service can give you a list of all the toddler groups in the area - their office is just by the Central Library. Make sure you phone the group organiser before you go along to anything though, as I turned up for one a few months ago to discover it wasn't running anymore blush

I'm quite new to the area as well (moved here in Feb) and have a very energetic 2yo, so if you want to meet up in a playground sometime I'm up for it smile Speaking of which, there is a nice cafe in Banstead called Pistachios In The Park that opens out onto a very small play area - it means you can sit in the sun with a coffee and watch your little one play in a safe space. You can get the S1 bus to Banstead if you don't drive.

That cafe in Banstead is quite nice. Shame the playground is a bit small, though I understand there's a local campaign trying to improve matters.

Yes, it is tiny, although at least that limits the amount of chasing around you have to do grin
